About Roger de Lacy, 2nd Baron Lacy

Roger de Lacy

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Retrieved 15 March 2015

Roger de Lacy,[1](died after 1106) was an Anglo-Norman nobleman, a Marcher Lord on the Welsh border. Roger was a castle builder, particularly at Ludlow Castle.

Lands and titles

From Walter de Lacy (died 1085) he inherited Castle Frome, Herefordshire.[2] The Domesday Survey (1086) shows Roger holding also Ocle Pychard,[3] Almeley Castle,[4] and Eardisley Castle.[5] He had an insecure lordship at Ewias Lacy now known as Longtown Castle on the modern day Welsh border.,[6] in Longtown, Herefordshire; Stanton Lacy was probably also his after Walter. His main stronghold was Weobley.[7] He held directly from the King.[8]

Rebel Baron[

He took part in the rebellion of 1088 against William Rufus, with the other local lords Osbern fitzRichard of Richard's Castle, Ralf of Mortemer, and Bernard of Neufmarche.[9] He was later implicated in the conspiracy of 1095 against William, and was exiled.[10]

Legacy of family conflict

Weobley passed to his brother Hugh de Lacy who died before 1115 when the de Lacy lands passed to Pain fitzJohn. Roger's son Gilbert de Lacy spent much effort recovering the Longtown and Ludlow holdings.[11]
